Hedgehog trapping

Hi,
I wonder if you can help me. I writing on behalf of a Spanish friend who is in charge of a hedgehog study near Barcelona. The problem is that his battery powered emitters which he had fitted to several hedgehogs have gone flat. He is now trying to trap them - without hurting them- and is using a "mustelid type pedal trap" don't know the correct term in English, but he is not having much success. Is there a better approach and if not what would be a normal success rate - and so he should plod on as he is.
Cheers
Nick Lloyd

Some details of the project are available here on my page

I've found answers to most of my questions here. Looks like fish, sunken ferret traps and perseverence are in order.
